Geneva Skeen is an interdisciplinary artist working in Los Angeles. Influenced heavily by écriture féminine, alchemical metaphors, and a mix of musical traditions ranging from holy mysticism to industrial, Skeen composes primarily with field recordings, digital presets, and mixed voice and instrumentation. Her current work is focused on the contrast between facing the finite resources of the physical landscape and its infinite digital representations. Her solo and collaborative works have been performed or presented at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, on the rooftop of The Standard Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, and on the façade of the Armory building in Long Beach, California, amongst others. She recently released her debut on Dragon’s Eye Recordings (Dark Speech) and will produce new projects for Land And Sea editions and Crystalline Morphologies in 2017. She is a member of VOLUME, a curatorial collective focused on sound-based practices.
soundSpark is a free, monthly new music series for young children featuring solo and duo performances by emerging artists. soundSpark takes place at 12pm on the first Saturday of every month. The June 2017 featured artist is Geneva Skeen.
One hour free parking in the garage (with validation)
The Children’s Theatre is on the second floor of the West Hollywood Library. From the garage, go upstairs and enter through the main doors. Walk straight down the hallway to the right, and the Children’s Theatre looks like a big shipping crate from the outside.
